The Transformation of the American Hospital: 2015–2020
The US hospital industry is in the midst of a major transformation of clinical and operational strategy, moving from a “heads to beds” provider-centric delivery system to a collaborative care continuum, with the patient at the epicenter of attention. Research analysis covers how reimbursement cuts and regulatory changes contribute towards the evolving role of hospital-based care in the United States. It examines the current financial status of US hospitals; the emerging partnership models between hospitals and ambulatory care providers; and the decentralization of diagnostic imaging and clinical laboratory services from within hospitals to free-standing service providers. A vision of care provision in 2020 and beyond ends the study.
